Here’s a practical way to promote the freedom of speech!
If you get an app that reads RSS feeds, you can:
- Get updates from your favorite sources automatically
- Avoid having to use email to get your updates.
- Go around censorship by bypassing Apple, Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and everyone else.
- Get my daily devotions automatically
- Get updates from Troy Taft Library
Using an RSS feed reader is like making your own “Twitter” or newspaper that comes directly to your app. “RSS” stands for Real Simple Syndicate and it’s just a technology that makes it possible for websites to share their content directly with your app. Your app just goes to the website for you and checks to see if anything is new. Because you go directly to the websites from your app, it bypasses the censorship that could happen in the middle.
You can get an RSS feed reader apps from Google Play or the Apple App store. The Windows app store also has RSS reader apps. Just search for “RSS Feed Reader” and then copy feeds and paste them into the place where feeds can be added in your app. Some email apps already have a place for you to add RSS feeds.
Get help from a friend if you need to
You might need to get the help of the person you know that always helps you do things on your phone. Just show them this page and they will probably figure out how to do it if they don’t know already. Just “Copy” a feed below and add it into your app by pasting it into the place where your app takes the feed address or “URL”.

John 1:14 : The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Since it’s so easy to look things up in the Bible these days, I encourage you to look up the verses that are listed by reference in these lessons.
Here we read that Jesus became a real person. He wasn’t a ghost or some kind of spirit. He was a real “flesh” and bone person. John, in I John, talks much more about the physical reality of Jesus. Some people say that Jesus was not a real person but a non-physical entity. It is very clear from the Bible that Jesus was “flesh.” He really lived on earth and he really displayed His glory. I think that the glory he is talking about here is the glory that John witnessed at the transfiguration; a time when Jesus appeared to His disciples in his heavenly glory while he was on earth. There are accounts of this event in the Bible (see: Matthew 17:1-6)
This verse also says that Jesus is the only son of God. This may be confusing because he just got done writing earlier that we are God’s children too. It is important to realize that we are not children like Jesus is. The Bible says that we are children of God because of what Jesus did. Jesus is a child of God because He is God. In that sense He is the only one who is a Son of God in the way He is. We, on the other hand are God’s children because of Jesus. You can read more about the fact that you are a Son of God by reading more in I John 2:28 – 3:2.
Jesus is “full of grace and truth.” I have been a believer for long time and I am still only beginning to appreciate this. The grace of Jesus is His favor for us. He likes us, just because He likes us. He doesn’t like us because we are so good or beautiful or popular or anything else. He just likes us because he decided to. On top of this, he gives us truth. He didn’t just give us commandments. He gave us truth. When you know the truth, you get to believe, not just follow orders. We know that when you believe something you do follow orders because you want to. Someone who does what they want all the time is free. Logically, I can see that the truth is connected to freedom, but only when I believe in Jesus.
